A dynamic duo of a different kind.

Gallia Academy volleyball senior Ashton Webb and junior Peri Martin landed on the Division II All-Ohio third team and honorable mention lists respectively, as selected by the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association.

Webb — an outside hitter and defensive specialist — was also on the All-Ohio third team as a junior, and is the first Blue Angel to earn multiple all-state volleyball honors.

This season, Webb had a team-high 369 kills, giving her program record 1,086 for her a career. Webb’s 75 aces this season were second on the team and put her six-shy of 300 for her career. Webb is a verbal commit to Ohio University.

Martin — just the third Blue Angel to be named to an All-Ohio team — was Gallia Academy’s setter, dishing out 802 this fall to put her just 16 away from 1,500 for her career.

This season, Martin had a team-best 95.8 serve percentage, while recording 41 aces. Martin is a verbal commit to West Virginia State University.

GAHS was 21-4 on the season, winning its fourth straight sectional title and OVC championship.

Alyssa Flading of Roger Bacon was the Division II Coach of the Year, with Sparta Highland’s Rob Terrill, Sheridan’s Mandy Fox, Bishop Hartley’s Michael Rahe, and Indian Valley’s Tera Pryor earning Coaching Achievement Awards.
